Before publishing a survey, please consider Lehigh University's Policy on the Protection of Human Subjects in Research:
All research and experimental activities that are conducted by Lehigh University and in which people are involved as subjects must be approved by Lehigh University's Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to the involvement of the subjects and prior to the distribution of any information or written materials* that require IRB approval. This applies to all sponsored and unsponsored research, continuing education and instructional projects and activities conducted by University faculty, students, and staff.
The IRB also reserves the right to review research and experimental activities involving human subjects when a University faculty or staff member or student is actively involved in the recruitment of subjects, whether in person or through the use of University resources (e.g., e-mail, telephone, campus postings, etc.), or is actively involved in the conduct of such research even though the research is not being conducted by the University.
Contact Naomi Coll at (610)758-3020 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) in Lehigh's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for assistance in determining if your study requires IRB review.
If you have any questions or comments, please email Judd Hark or call: (610) 758-3984.
